The 14th Annual CGFOA Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 16, 2017 at Murphy Creek Golf Course in Aurora. The event is established as a must do for our CGFOA membership that consistently draws between 88 and 104 players.
The event is primarily designed to be a social activity for any and all CGFOA members, but will also provide an opportunity to network with peers and vendors. While we hope to eventually get participation to a level that only CGFOA members will be eligible to play, we will again allow each member to bring one non-member from their organization. However, CGFOA is always happy to accept new members.
Each year, the sponsorships by the associate members play a major role in the success of the tournament. Hopefully, that will be the case again this year.
Thus, please consider this an open invitation for your business to participate this year as a sponsor. Sponsorships can be monetary (to apply towards lunch, prizes, “sponsor a hole”, etc.) or in the form of door prizes (golf balls, driver, putter, shirts, hats, tickets to sporting events, etc.). The amount and type of sponsorships will determine the final price for the event that gets charged to each golfer. This year, we are again asking $250 to “sponsor a hole” (which gets you a sign with your company name and logo on the tee box), or general contributions of any amount. As a reminder, sponsors will still have to pay the entry fee to participate in the tournament, and can request one individual to play in their foursome. This approach has been well received by the sponsors in the past, so we’re continuing it going forward.
In addition, we are looking for one sponsor for the contest holes (longest drive and 2 closest to the pin holes each for men and women). For $1000, this sponsor will have a sign with their name and logo at the tee box of each of the six contest holes and will present the prizes to the contest winners at the awards luncheon.
So that we can calculate the entry fee and send out the appropriate information to the general membership, we will need to have all of the sponsorship commitments by Friday, April 14. Please contact Kathy Velzen with information on the nature of your sponsorship. Please submit the requested information through Cvent.. If you are making a monetary donation to the tournament, we will need to have payment by April 28 (credit card or checks made out to CGFOA). If you have any questions, please contact Kathy at the CGFOA office (303-922-4647), or call me at 303-384-8020.
Thank you for your continued support of CGFOA and for your assistance in making our annual golf tournament a success.
